    5 THINGS I KNOW I learned from reading Sirens of Titan 1 Kurt Vonnegut was a brilliantly insightful GENIUS whose brain waves were ever so slightly out of phase with our universe making complete comprehension of his work by the rest of us impossible 2 In the hands of a master, literature can be both incredibly entertaining and soul piercingly deep 3 Vonnegut had a rock hard MAD on the size of a Dyson Sphere against Organized Religion 4 Winston Niles Rumfoord is a Gigantanormous, Hobbit blowing, Douchasaurus Rex or if you prefer the proper latin phrase Giganticus, SamwiseGamgeeus, Douchbaggius Maximus and5 A Martian soldier unable to stand at attention because he has been strangled to death by his best friendcan be VERY, VERY FUNNY There is quite a bit that I m pretty sure of after reading this Vonnegut classic, but on the above I am very confidant I had so much fun with this book and I am sure that I still missed some of what Vonnegut was trying to say His delivery is so dry and understated that if your attention wonders even for a moment, you can miss hi...

    Somebody up there likes me One of my favorite film directors is Wes Anderson I m not sure if he is a fan of Kurt Vonnegut, but he should be and he should produce and direct the film adaption of Kurt Vonnegut s novel, Sirens of Titan Sirens of Titan, Vonnegut s second published novel, was released in 1959 Some aspects of his brilliant short story Harrison Bergeron, which was published in 1961, are revealed in the pages of Sirens Other aspects of this novel are fairly representative of the later work that many people regard as his masterpiece, Slaughterhouse Five In fact, interestingly, aspects of several works in Vonnegut s bibliography can be detected, including Gal pagosand Slapstick or Lonesome No More.Player Piano may have been the first book published by Kurt Vonnegut, but Sirens of Titan was the first Vonnegut book.Player Piano was an excellent story, a fine work of science fiction l...

    I ll start with a roundabout introduction Garry Kasparov was not just one of the best chessplayers of all time, he was also one of the best analysts Even as a teenager, he was always coming up with the most amazing ideas Chessplayers often prefer to hoard their ideas it can be worth a lot to surprise your opponent in a critical game, and there are many stories about grandmasters keeping a new move in the freezer for years, or even decades Kasparov asked his trainer if he should be hoarding too No, Garry came the sage reply Use them now You ll get new ones And, indeed, this turned out to be a correct prediction.Kurt Vonnegut wrote Sirens of Titan early in his career, and I wonder if he didn t receive similar advice The novel contains enough ideas for half a dozen normal books, and fairly bubbles with creative energy I like it much than Slaughterhouse Five, and I ve always wondered why it isn t better known I suppose it doesn t actually make sense but, for goodness sakes, do things always have to make sense Free associating for a moment, Candide, A Grand Day Out and the Old Testament are all undisputed masterpieces None of them make sense, and they would be greatly diminished if they did Put them together...

    the sirens of titan or as i have alternatively titled it, why life is the universes greatest long con is the perfect catalyst for my impending existential crisis all courtesy of john in this review, i will explore the two major themes of the novel, state what we can learn them, and explain how these lessons apply to our meager lives lets get started.free will ah, the biggest illusion of them them all if the universe was a magician, the fact that we somehow believe we have control over our lives would be considered the finale, the best trick saved for last because we are nothing than victims of a series of accidents the combination of random events created us and will continue to lead us and nothing we can do or say has any influence over that there is no way to control that which is unpredictable alexa, play despacito meaning and purpose if you choose to believe vonnegut, intrinsically everyone knows how to find the meaning of life within themselves meaning that, even though we just established we have no control over our lives, we can still find meaning purpose and make it highly personal in nature in this instance, i agree with the book, in that the purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved unfortunately for me, im painfully single in closing, what have we learned its that life is meaningless but we should be happy about it because even though we may not be able to control what life throws a...

    Always prophetic Always relevant In Kurt Vonnegut s The Sirens of Titan, we accompany Malachi Constant on adventures through time and space He is unlike any other hero you re likely to read about Malachi was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all The plot, which seems ridiculous and completely random like those series of accidents , takes on visionary proportions in Vonnegut s hands Especially in this novel, I thought about how much Vonnegut had influenced Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy Whereas Vonnegut uses the absurd to explore what makes us human because what else really is there besides the absurd , Adams takes the absurd and turns it into a funny and highly entertaining romp I was so struck by the similarities that I began to re read Adams even before finishing Sirens I recommend this book for any fan of Vonnegut or Adams Finally, by having our hero, Malachi, as an unwitting victim of his own adventures during a lifetime of learning and un...

    Love the One You re WithMost of Vonnegut s enduring tropes start life in Sirens Time and its distortions Places like Newport and Indianapolis People such as Rumfoord and Ben and Sylvia The planet Tralfamadore and its inhabitants And of course the Volunteer Fire DepartmentWhat holds these oddities together is what holds everything of Vonnegut together, an ethical theology His sci fi is a way of displacing talk about God just enough to do some serious thinking And he may indeed have inspired a new generation of thinkers about God as a consequence.Vonnegut s Church of God the Utterly Indifferent follows a teaching remarkably like a Christian theology developed almost 40 years after Vonnegut s novel This theology of the Weakness of God rejects the idea of God as the all powerful fixer of the universe And it rejects the idea that power flows downhill, as it were, from the divine source to spiritual and secular leaders Its ethical import is that all of us are engaged in a search for God, and that the only help we have in this search comes from our fellow human beings.This is essentially Vonnegut s Titanic Theology The two chief teachings of this religion are these Puny man can do nothing at all to help or please God Almighty, and Luck is not the hand of God God does not interfere in human affairs he is what in traditional theology...

    3RD READ THROUGH 4 18 17 Since I was about 19, I ve been referring to this novel as my favorite book I don t know if quite holds that distinction still, having read a lot in the succeeding 15 years, but it is STILL, without question one of the best This book might be the plottiest of all of Vonnegut s novels, while I enjoy the voice later Vonnegut much The Sirens of Titan was only his second book the ideas presented here are deep and varied, lying what is obviously the philosophical and spiritual groundwork for a lifetime of work to still come This book still hits...

    Do you read a Vonnegut book, or does the book read you Does it expose your thoughts to the most detailed analysis of humanity, human behavior, and human mind and then tells you to not give a damn Except that it also seizes the phrase to not give a damn from your control Leaves you hanging midair Questioning.So what to do What is to be done Apart from whatever has already been done You go beyond the story See Unk staring at you pointedly with a hazy gaze Figure out if he thinks whether you are in control of the story or is he the real commander Go beyond the clich , beyond the at times stupendously obvious humour Look at the blanketed irony Then either sleep in the warmth of ignorance or throw away the cover and dive deep in the chills of reality.Reading Vonnegut is probably a religion The Church of God the Exquisitely Sarcastic.Shake hands with Rumfoord If he allows you to do so.Peer through the kaleidoscope of allusions The allusions in the form of the War, Harmoniums, Old Salo A machine with a heart, as opposed to humans with emotions hardened as Titanic peat due to over exposure to something unrecognized or overtly...

    Rented a tent, a tent, a tent Rented a tent, a tent, a tent Rented a tent Rented a tent Rented a, rented a tent Snare Drum on Mars That is funny until it suddenly becomes creepy, to tell you why would be a spoiler though The Sirens of Titan is great stuff, this should come as no surprise to you if you are a Kurt Vonnegut fan, but it surprised the hell out of me You see, I didn t like Cat s Cradle, one of his most celebrated books and, if I remember correctly, I didn t like Slaughterhouse Five either, though I read that too long ago to be sure Slaughterhouse Five is even celebrated than Cat s Cradle So I didn t expect to like The Sirens of Titan, not a good attitude to start a book with, but after a few pages it just clicked The Sirens of Titan is obviously science fiction but if you are a die hard sci fi fan with Clarke, Asimov etc as your literary heroes you may want to approach this book with a different set of expectations Even with spaceships, aliens and c...
